    simple-express-logs

    Simple express logging middleware

    Are you prototyping an Express app and want a simple way to log all requests? Good news, you're looking at it.

    Install

    $ npm install --save simple-express-logs

    Usage

    const express = require('express');
    const logger = require('simple-express-logs');
     
    const app = express();
    app.use(logger());

    Or, in one line:

    app.use(require('simple-express-logs')());

    Output

    By default, simple-express-logs outputs a timestamp, whether the request was made over HTTP or HTTPS, the HTTP verb, the path, the source IP, and the reverse DNS host (if available.)

    20:06 1/15/2019 UTC: http GET / from 24.63.26.119 (c-24-63-26-119.hsd1.ma.comcast.net) referred by https://www.google.com

    Options

    Both the the header values and request body are not logged by default, but may be enabled when adding the middleware.

    app.use(logger({ headers: true }));
    23:15 1/25/2019 UTC: http POST /api/test/?type=sample Headers: { host: "localhost:8080", user-agent: "HTTPie/0.9.9", accept-encoding: "gzip, deflate", accept: "application/json, */*", connection: "keep-alive", content-type: "application/json", content-length: "24" }

    Logging the body relies on the body property of the request to be populated, so make sure to do that before using the logger.

    app.use(bodyParser.json());
    app.use(logger({ body: true }));
    23:15 1/25/2019 UTC: http POST /api/test/?type=sample Body: {"VehicleColor":"Blue"}

    By default, reverse DNS is used to log the request's host.

    app.use(logger());
    5:17 1/8/2019 UTC: https GET /favicon.ico from 66.249.66.152 (crawl-66-249-66-152.googlebot.com)

    This can be disabled with the reverseDNS option.

    app.use(logger({ reverseDNS: false }));
    5:17 1/8/2019 UTC: https GET /favicon.ico from 66.249.66.152
